Somewhere there is a Gourd, from which issues the Elixir…. Barrie Dale Wildhaven
This is a high-magnification image of the Orchid'Phalaenopsis'. It was taken in natural light, with no manipulation. I work hand-held to give freedom of expression.

Subject matter become unrecognisable at high magnification I scan natural forms, looking for images that have'meaning'. I prefer'meaning'to'beauty'because'meaning'is less subjective. I try to follow Turner, Monet, Cézanne in making honest studies of Nature; but I also want to learn from Ernst, Magritte and Miró in finding interest in chance configurations.

What does the image mean? My thought when taking it was that -'somewhere there is a Gourd, from which issues the Elixir which will cure all ills; the problem lies in finding it in the dark'.
